The Alternate you
A friend of mine started an experiment this past week. She’s not a big drinker, a social drinker yes, but not a big drinker. This past weekend she had a bad taste put in her mouth after what wasn’t a lot to drink. It took a day a half to recover from a few drinks. Needless to say she didn’t like the recover time for that hangover. Not sure what to do about it she started an experiment…no alcohol for a year. For some this is really not a challenge at all, silly in fact, but for others it is a bit more of a challenge. I think it’s also going to be a realization for her as to how much she really does drink – and interesting year is in store. If you’d like to follow along she started a blog – http://ayobexperiment.blogspot.com. Check it out and give her your support.
Myself – I spent 4 years trying to have a baby…one of the things I did while trying to achieve this goal was not consume alcohol. This was based on the belief that it would inhibit my ability to conceive. It was easy most of the time, but it there were times when it was difficult…like when dealing with a non-sober husband. I wasn’t a social drinker and I didn’t have a favorite drink either which made it easier. The task might be harder now becoming a social drinker in the last year and finding my favorite drink…but I don’t think so.
